Summer Fruit Crisp

The peaches and cherries are in full swing here in Southern Ontario.  I bought a few peaches and cherries at the market last week and although I love eating them just as they are, I also like to bake with them.  There is nothing easier than whipping up a fruit crisp, and it is even easier if you make it in the microwave.  Here is my recipe for fruit crisp.

Fruit Crisp

5-6 cups of fresh fruit (I used a combination of cherries and peaches this time, apples work, or blueberries, raspberries etc.)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup butter
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Spray a microwavable dish.  Pit the cherries, chop or slice the peaches or apples.  Place the fruit in the dish.  Cook on high for 3 to 4 minutes or until the fruit is slightly soft.

In a separate microwavable bowl, combine brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Mix in the butter so it is crumbly.  Cook on high for 2 to 3 minutes or until hot and bubbly, mixing halfway through.  Spread over fruit.

Cook everything on high for 5-7 minutes until the fruit is soft and the topping is bubbly. 


I like to pour cream over the top of my crisp, I think this is Nova Scotia thing.  Of course, whipped cream or ice cream works too.
